Inner thigh pain: Generally a pulled groin will cause pain along the inner aspect of the upper thigh. The pain can be worsened by resisting adduction (squeezing the knees together against resistance) and or by abducting (pulling the affected leg away from the other leg. These exam findings are not specific or sensitive in a laymans hand so please consult a specialist for proper evaluation.

Groin Pull: If this injury has remained symptomatic for six months then proper medical evaluation by a physician is necessary. There could be several reasons for popping in and around the hip. It is imperative than an orthopedist evaluate for problems inside and around the outside of the hip joint such as hip labral tears, bony avulsions, snapping tendons, stress fractures and referred pain from the back.

Osteitis pubis: Osteitis pubis is a central ache directly over the junction of the pubic bones. It can be very difficult to distinguish this from a groin pull as the groin muscles attach on the pubic bone. Stress fractures can also mimic osteitis pubis. These are seen more commonly in runners. Diagnostic injection into the region may help. Mri is also very sensitive in helping determine the source of pain.
